Past experience has taught us that there will must likely be some referral system in place when buying the bundle that will add more apps for people who's referral code gets used by others.
Just to make sure it all doesn't happen to quickly when the bundle is out there, we should probably set up some referral trade system for team orange now. Some way of pairing people up in advanced perhaps?

That'd be a very smart way to ensure everyone got all the apps in the bundle

I agree who wants me to refer them? PM me.  Any extra that I get I will refer back to others who PM'd me.

EDIT:  Here is my referral code.  I have my 2 referrals.  Help another orange.

Go Team Orange!

Like I said above, PM me and I will give the referrals to the next person that PM's me.  For example:

People PM me  (if we get all the extras with 3 referrals, I think that is what it has been in the past).  I will send my referrals to the first 3 people who PM me, and then give the next 3 people's information (person 4, 5, & 6) to the first person who PM'd me, then give the next three to the second person (7, 8, & 9), and so on like that until I run out of PM's.

This sounds like the best way so that people don't receive 20 referral requests for posting in the forums that they would like a referral.

Well, I think the most basic thing we should ensure is that no Agent Orange buys the bundle without using someone else's referral code.
pilotN46370: I don't quite understand your idea... In all past events you could only use 1 referral code per purchase, so if I understand correctly, every person participating would have to purchase 3 bundles...

This is actually a really good idea. I bought the bundle as the 24th buyer last year, and then I just wished I had waited so that I could have done referrals. All of my friends stayed up that night for the reveal and we all bought the bundle immediately. I will definitely wait this time so that I can get my referrals!

I don't remember much from the last time since I couldn't refer anyone, but is the referral like a pyramid scheme or is it not?

If A buys through B's referral, can B buy through A's referral? If yes, then this is fine. Otherwise someone's bound to feel ripped off.

I was thinking it was 3 referrals for some reason.  Must have been something else I was thinking about.  Sorry for the confusion.

So, we are going to be able to refer people who are already on MH?  That's not what I would have expected. 

But, if that is so (and if there even is a referral system this year), I suppose I'm in! big_smile

The only reason I found out about MacHeist is because a work mate referred me to the Giving Tree last Christmas. I have no idea what the bundle referral system is, but if it offers an opportunity to do someone else the same favour that was done me, I'll be using any referral for that.

Thanks for your referral clicks whoever you were.

I don't understand this...

Orange team members give a referral to other orange team members?



I thought any referral option was for people not involved in MacHeist in the first place. Seems silly to me that anyone involved with MacHeist would refer anyone else involved with MacHeist. Most people involved with MacHeist would probably buy the bundle. Referring people not involved would boost the numbers being sold.

Correct me if I am wrong, but to refer other members just doesn't sound right. Unless of course you are using other e-mail accounts not associated with MacHeist, and they buy one for each. But why would anyone buy two?

Orange you glad I didn't say banana?

Just a short explanation about the referral system to all the confused (at least, according to how it worked on previous bundles):
Every MH users (regardless of if they had bought the bundle yet or not) got a referral URL that led too the bundle purchase page. When someone else (anyone, MH user or not) bought the bundle using this referral URL, the user who's URL was used got a "referral point". These points unlocked additional apps from the bundle, and there has always been several pretty sweet apps at the 1 point tier. So, a very popular strategy is to "trade referral URLs", meaning 2 MH participants buy the bundle using each-other's URLs which results in the apps getting unlocked for both of them. You can then continue spreading your URL to other non-MH-participants all you like, trying to unlock the rest of the apps (that I've never found myself really wanting anyway... but that depends on the bundle).
So, to some it all up, my suggestion is that instead of everyone rushing off and buying the bundle the second it is revealed, in the case that a referral system exists this time around as well, we should all pair up within our team (because our team rocks) and make sure that as many as possible have at least the 1 referral app unlocked for them.

In order for this to work someone will have to be the fall guy and not be able to be referred but will have to refer someone else.  At least from what I remember of how it worked last time. I think you have to buy to get your referral code if I'm not mistaken.

I bought the bundle last year but I do not remember getting a referral code.  I do remember others pushing referral codes in the forums. 

If they have one this year count me in.  I am willing to use someone's code, buy, and pass along a code to someone else.
